Prevent word wrap in smartforms main window.

Hi all

Is there a way to prevent word wrap in the main window in Smartforms. When I output a string in a table in smartforms, and the string is longer than the column, it wraps the rest of the string to the following line. This is nice, and required in most cases. But in my case the user rather has the string broken off than wrapped.

Now it is printed the following way:

Line field1 field2

1 A This is

line 1

2 B text

The user wants it the following way:

Line field1 field2

1 A This is

2 B text

I don't want to set a fixed field lenght to the string because an 'I' for example takes in a lot less space than 'W'..


Kind regards

    Hi Thierry,

    Even we faced the same issues and I have not got the solution. But then we applied a workaround.. We found the approximate characters which would fit in that particular column and without spilling over to next line and we printed only those many characters of that string using offset.. OR you can use a Character field of that much length and pass the contents of that string to this Character field and keep on printing the Char field without Offset..

    Hope this helps !!
